    The metal bracelet on my Storm Chaser Pro is leaking screws all over the show:

    So just ordered the sporty leather replacement strap, looks a lot better in my estimation:

    How is that mall watch designed to chase storms, and even pretends to be for pros, when it’s bracelet can’t even support your paper pushing?

    Hanukkah hands

    White faces very popular among arab warmongers
    They like white faces on their women and their watches

    Posts like these is what makes me love this thread.

    I cannot say that I have any interest in owning any Seiko watch ever. Just not my jam.

    The dealer here has one in stock, but it is supposedly on hold for someone. I am gonna send you the contact info via PM. If they don’t pick it up on the weekend, I’m sure they would be happy to sell it to you.

    It only took them 110 years to make a watch I'd buy.

    Good thing it's a solid case back, I'd hate to be associated with those trifling Sub wearers

    I'm aware. I'm glad they hid the movement so I don't have guilt by association.

    The caseback hides the fact it's the same movement as the Sub.

    Yep, it does.

    I didn't realise they made a 40 version, only a 37 and the II

    The 37 Yachtmaster has a different movement. I guess because of the case shape.

    My biggest gripe with the Sub and other models, beyond hating on Rolechs, is I don't like the cases whatsoever. The Yachtie is almost Omega like, with nice shaping in the case and lugs.

    I plan on self flaggelation every time I wear it and sacrificing a few goats at an altar of my Vacherons and Omegas.
